He called Monday evening.
Give it time. Stop reading into things. You had a great time, met some fun people. If he calls ok, if he doesn't - don't take it personally - it's still ok. You still had a great time.
Give it till Wednesday then let it go. He isn't interested.

He's really young to be thinking about some other man's kid in the picture, you know?
If he doesn't call, I doubt it had anything to do with YOU, but more about where he is in life. Single, carefree and looking for someone in that same vein.
You are just on different pages right now! I think meeting single dads would make a lot more sense for you. Easier to relate to. :)
I'd say one in five guys I give my number to calls. Honestly, you have to not put stock in this stuff. If someone doesn't call, it probably has more to do with him than you - and if he does have some problem with you, I doubt you'd have a very satisfying relationship with him, so why would you want to waste your time?
Your attitude at the beginning was great Shelly - you were focused on the fact that you had a good evening, fun with friends, got out of the house, got the courage to give him your number, you're happy even if he doesn't call. What happened to that last bit? The obsessing on your part is the only red flag I see in anyone's behavior here.
Funny thing is.... I didn't really expect him to call...but am proud I gave him my number and eliminated the "what if".... I know we would probably not work due to the age thing....but I still had fun! It was nice to get male attantion for once! I'm in rush for a relationship....but at least now I know I have the guts to pursue the guy if I am interested. That's something I would have NEVER done 10 years ago!!!

Dating is scary as heck and if you see someone your interested in take charge and give it a try.
You done good
4 kids all adults.
Married 22+ years.
I have moved on and life is good!
Now I know exactly what I want and I'm not afraid to show it. Do what you think is right for you. Don't second guess or doubt yourself. You have all the answers you need. Who cares what people think. If you get shot down, well, then they weren't worth your precious time. Your a diamond star!!! Don't forget that. You're the awesome one, remember! :)

I agree! I don't regret giving him my number one bit! I look at it as his loss! I know I'm a good woman and a good catch! I treat my man right when I AM in a relationship..... and right now I'm in no rush. I have plenty to keep me busy between work and my daughter and just keeping up with life in general!!!
I believe God has a plan for us all and eventually the right one will cross my path....heck we might knock each other down.....literally! I look forward to it!
No big deal and I don't think it's anyone's fault. Not yours or his. You just have to keep getting back on the horse.
Of course, at 24 years old he could have got hammered the rest of the night and lost your number or threw the pants in the wash with it in their. Who knows and who cares.
